CK Tutoring was founded in April of 2020 when many families were facing the struggle of schools being shut down and students falling behind in their classes and overall progress. CK Tutoring's focus is on instilling study and organizational habits that will set students up to excel in their educational careers rather than fall behind due to distance learning. Rather than teaching students the material, tutors here strive to motivate the student, promote the teacher's lessons, and help students when they are stuck. CK Tutoring has two specialized tutors both Undergraduate students at WMU in their third year.

All new students must schedule first appointment 1 week in advance and fill out a Consent Form upon arrival. This Consent Form is more like a non binding contract for the student to know what they can expect of their tutor and what the tutor will expect from them. After this, tutors will try to spend the first twenty minutes or so getting to know the student, connecting with them, and trying to understand their troubles or where they are struggling. We at CK Tutoring succeed only through the mutual trust and respect we have with our students, so tutors try their very best to begin to establish this before outlining the goals for the session and the future, then getting to work on school work.
